Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants Review

Icon has catered to the urban street scene for a long time. In fact, that is actually what they have created their brand around. So what do I think of their new Overlord Prime Leather Pants? Well, the fact that these pants are constructed of 1.2-1.4 mm premium grade leather is an excellent start. So is the 360 zipper for attachment to Overlord jackets (something I never thought we would see on an Icon jacket). But don’t mistake these for track pants. The Overlord Prime pants would be best intended for the street rider that wants the protection of leather without appearing like he’s suiting up for the track. First of all, these pants don’t include knee sliders. There are outer armor pieces on the knee, however they aren’t intended (or in the proper spot) for dragging a knee. The Overlord Prime pants are also an over the boot design, making them look more like every day riding pants. Substantial use of stretch material along the inner thighs and down the back of the legs also really helps to keep the Overlord Prime pants comfortable both on and off the bike. Perforation is limited so they will not be ideal for super-hot weather, but you will get some airflow to keep you comfortable. I think this is a good direction for Icon, as the quality of their materials and craftsmanship is definitely high quality. Be sure to check out Icon Motorcycle Pants in our online store.
